Fox News stars have already said that no amount of gun control could have prevented the tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, but the owner of the network disagrees.

The controversial Rupert Murdoch is now making headlines for going on the record on Twitter with his stance on the much debated topic of gun control.

After one man gunned down and killed 20 children and 6 adults before taking his own life, Mr. Murdoch tweeted about what he perceived as a desperate need for gun control.

“Terrible news today. When will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons? As in Oz after similar tragedy,” the media mogul tweeted.

As we also reported the other day, the terrible tragedy has once more reignited the debate on gun control.

Former governor Mike Huckabee, though, believes that something as horrendous as this wouldn’t have happened had we not “systematically removed God from our schools.”
